Wellbeing


KY aims to provide the best student experience around for our members. Our goal is that everyone feels welcome in our community and that our students can thrive without having to worry about concerns regarding student life. However, sometimes student life can also include struggles, whether it is with managing your time and energy in the middle of all the responsibilities, finding your group of friends or something else.

Sometimes it’s useful to see that you’re not alone with your feelings. Aalto University researches the state of study wellbeing by an annual questionnaire AllWell. Here are some figures from the 2020 year survey for Bachelor level students at Aalto BIZ. Read more about AllWell here.



BEWELL


BeWell, KY's new wellbeing program was created in 2019 as a response to the challenges our members face in their wellbeing.


With this program KY aims to create an open and transparent environment and make the discussion about difficult topics easier. Are you in need of help but don’t know where to get it?

Safe Environment


Besides feeling good, it is crucial that each of us feel safe and respected in our community. KY wants to provide a safe and equal environment for everyone and has created a set of rules and wishes for the type of behavior we expect in everyday KY life.

WELLBEING TUTORS


Uni years are often described as the best years of our lives – and no wonder why! However, alongside all the gloriousness, everyone faces struggles from time to time, whether it is due to stress at school or a big change in life.


Wellbeing tutors are here to offer peer support to you in anything you could think of: school stress, worries about finding friends, struggles with self-criticism, or anxiety, only to mention a few examples. Each of the tutors has a specialty area where they can offer the best support possible.
